Ray Hargreaves disputes that this is the first litho & Ellis notes: see Park, The village of Richmond 2/11/04: A NOTE RE: THE LITHOGRAPHERS
An article in the New Zealand Gazette dated June 12, 1841 on page 3, column 1 reads:
'A plan of the harbour is now on sale at our Office, price two shillings and sixpence. It is very neatly lithographed, and does its authors, Messrs Jones and Bluett, great credit...Mr. Jones and Mr. Bluett have since lithographed a plan of Wades town, and a view of the harbour from the Tinakori hill...'
